Oil prices firmed on Thursday, as bargain-hunting by traders and relief over geopolitics helped provide a modest boost to crude after days of selling.
Benchmark oil is still down over 4 percent so far in September, on track for its biggest monthly fall since April. It is down nearly $8 from its peak earlier in the month as fears have faded about conflict in the Middle East.

The spread between the two benchmarks widened to $5.91 from Wednesday's close of $5.66.
